As the memorial convoy for Len Kane Sr. prepared to depart the marshalling yard in Port Kells, organizers put flowers on the front hood of the pickup truck bearing his ashes.
The smaller truck, which was Kane’s personal transportation, was chained to the back of a big flatbed, part of the fleet operated by Kane’s company, Len’s Transportation Group .
It was roughly double the amount expected to show, one organizer said.
The big rigs left Ranger Yard, at 9470 192 St. in Port Kells at 3 p.m. and travelled through Port Kells and Walnut Grove with black ribbons tied to their rear-view mirrors.
The dress code for the service that followed was the same as the convoy; baseball caps, t-shirts, jeans and no suits, because that’s the way Kane would have wanted it.
